Rocky Peak Park - Simi Valley, CA - Part 2

Tracking down some more Mandalorian filming locations from S02E06.

Star Wars stories
Last week we went out in search of locations from The Mandalorian - Season 2, Episode 6 - The Tragedy, and found a few that you can read more about here:

There were several scenes that I wasn't able to locate, but with some help online and the use of Google Earth I was able to find the area I missed. It turns out I was looking on the wrong side of the trail during the first trip and walked right by these. Plus there are a couple of prop rocks in the some of the scenes that can throw you off some.

Rocky Peak Park - Simi Valley, CA

Tracking down some Mandalorian filming locations from S02E06.

Star Wars stories
One of the first things I noticed while watching The Mandalorian - Season 2, Episode 6 - The Tragedy, was how much it looked like Simi Valley. I've done some hiking in Santa Susana area before and the rocks and landscape are very distinctive. These are crazy times though and I kind of just pushed it to the back of my mind to look into again sometime later when things returned to normal. A recent post by Star Wars Places on Facebook inspired me to head out in search of these locations a little sooner though.

And I found some of them!

There were some angles that I wasn't able to locate or maybe they added them later back at the studio on the Stagecraft set.

After years of neglect, this website finally died and I was forced to spend some time updating it the the latest version of the glFusion CMS. Hopefully everything should be working again now, but contact me if you notice anything still broken. I am also going through the rest of the site trying to fix broken links, posting updates, etc. Thanks.

I also re-enabled the ability to create accounts and comment on stories and in the forums. I'll keep an eye on the spam and bot activity to see if it becomes a problem again.

I have disabled the creation of new accounts and allowing comments on the site for now. After years of running the site, there were only about 150 accounts that had been registered, but that has increased by 1,400 in the last week. So I will be locking these features down until I can update the site.

Most of the activity is taking place on the Facebook and Twitter accounts so be sure to visit us there.

Make your pledge now for these great Kickstarter projects while there is still time left!

Where did they film the Ewok movies?

Star Wars stories

I've never seen anyone post pictures or talk much about the filming locations used in the Star Wars Ewok Adventures TV movies. The area seen in them definitely looks like the hills and forests around Marin County and that's what the filming location is listed as in IMDB. It makes sense that they wouldn't stray too far away from Skywalker Ranch also since they would have had a limited budget with a made for television movie.

Up until now, I haven't given it much thought, but a recent article I stumbled upon included a familiar looking rock in the background. In fact, it was Big Rock Ranch, directly next to Skywalker Ranch. You can even go for a hike on a trail that starts there. I wonder how many other recognizable Ewok movie locations can be seen along the trail? If I am ever in the area again, I'll definitely try going on a hike in the area.
